Holiday Road Trip Tips

Holiday Road Trip Tips When jaunting out for this year’s holiday road trip, there are a few things you may want to consider.

Check Your Vehicle
Everyone should be getting regular maintenance on their vehicle, however, when traveling in variable weather perhaps in other areas of the country, you must prepare for the unexpected. Carrying things like an ice scraper, a spare tire, jumper cables and a flashlight can be crucial to have when on a road trip. Even extra gas, food and water are good ideas if your road trip travels are taking you through remote areas.

Shhhh — it’s a secret

Shhhh — it’s a secret “The customer is always right.” In retail, this phrase is viewed as the epitome of customer service. Keeping customers happy is what keeps them coming back to your store again and again. But that is getting to be more difficult these days.

Consumers have high demands when it comes to convenience and purchases. They value their hard-earned money and don’t want to be hassled to locate items or prices in a store. So how do retailers learn about their customer base without polling everyone who walks in the door?


Huge Turnout for customer appreciation at CCSW

Turnout Huge at CCSW Event An hour before the event even started, people were lined up around the building at Creek Convenience Store Wetumpka (CCSW) for a chance to win a $100,000 jackpot and other giveaway prizes.

In May, CCSW hosted a customer appreciation event to thank all the loyal patrons who visit the store on a regular basis. As an incentive to stop by, CCSW's promotion involved a third-party prize machine in which guests had up to seven chances to spin the reels to see what prize they won.


CCSW: A higher standard of retail

CCSW: A higher standard of retail Retail is a difficult business to thrive in sometimes. Changing trends, supplying what the customer wants and being unique enough in a niche market are a challenge in this competitive industry.

That's why Creek Convenience Store Wetumpka (CCSW) stands out against the big chain gas stations in the area.

"We hold our store and employees to a higher standard," General Manager of CCSW Ellis Martin said. "Our customer service, our products and the maintenance of the store is a high priority and top-notch (compared to other convenience store operations). Our drive-through service is also something we excel in. Not all stores are as efficient as we are, and many don't even offer drive-through service."


CCSW turns 1

General Manager Ellis Martin invited the public to stop by the store and hang out with employees. A number of venues provided entertainment for the guests. On hand was the NASCAR No. 22 Shell show car, which represents the car driven by NASCAR driver Joey Logano, and a racing simulator game gave participants the experience of what it’s like to drive a race car.
